Call for Entries: Made in the South Awards


Calling all Southern makers. We are now accepting entries for the 2017 Garden & Gun Made in the South Awards, our annual quest to find the best in Southern craftsmanship, design, and creativity. Over the past seven years, we’ve been proud to shine a spotlight on the South’s wealth of talent and ingenuity, and now is your chance to submit your product for consideration by our judges.
The rules are simple:
The Made in the South Awards are open to any maker whose Southern-made product will be available through January 2018 and falls into one of our six categories: Style, Food, Drink, Home, Crafts, and Outdoors. Entries will be judged by a group of G&G editors and an exemplary panel of guest judges. This year’s judges are Academy Award–winning actress and Draper James founder Reese Witherspoon and Draper James CEO Andrea Hyde (Style), Georgia chef Mashama Bailey (Food), spirits expert and owner of four celebrated Washington, D.C., cocktail dens Derek Brown (Drink), Virginia-born designer and international tastemaker 
Bunny Williams (Home), Savannah School of Art and Design co-founder and president Paula Wallace (Crafts), and G&G contributor and veteran sportsman T. Edward Nickens (Outdoors). The editors and judges will select a winner and three runners-up in each category and one overall winner. Those selected will be featured in the pages of our December 2017/January 2018 issue, and the overall winner will also take home a $10,000 grand prize.
Take a peek at last year’s winners and runners-up, including hand-blown barware from North Carolina (Terrane Glass Designs), Mississippi-grown rice grits (Delta Blues Rice), and made-to-measure skirts in striking botanical prints out of Charleston, South Carolina (Carson & Co.).
